This is a proud distinction for one 
fiaaAcial institution to have, and 
well for the patriotic impul- 


by weather conditions the 
over. This puzzlement has 
increasing for thirty-three 
months or thereabouts, since the out- 
bjeak of the European war, in fact. 
Some venture the opinion that the 
war operations are affecting the 
weather conditions, while others are 
just as positive that cannon fire has 
nothing to do with the situation. 

Those holding to the first theory 
argue that if rainy, stormy weather 
followed months after explosions of 
the volcanoes of Mt. Pele, Mt. Kat- 
mai and Krakatoa, the thirty-three 
months of almost continuous cannon- 
ading in Mesopotamia, Palestine, 
Turkey, Russia^the Balkans, Austria 
and France mult have the same con- 
sequences as that ascribed to the vol- 
caoes — the freeing of clouds of 
dust-parti<-les to be carried into the 
upper air currents and disarranging 
thenr as well as the lower atmos- 
phere. If they are right, then the 
war operations by creating freak 
weather are responsible for the bad 
crop conditions all over the world. 

For some days recently the skies of 
lower Michigan were darkened and 
the sun shone with a sickly glare 
through the rifts. Some have blamed 
forest fires in Wexford, Missaukee, 
Iron and Gogotyc counties for this 
condition, recalling the palls of 
smoke which for days overhung the 
Michigan peninsula during the forest 
fire periods of 1871 and 1881. This 
explanation, if true, would bolster up 
the theories of those who think the 
European war is wrecking the world s 
weather and crops. 

Of two schools of thought in the 
United States weather bureau one 
has repudiated with scorn the idea 
that cannon fire in Europe can af- 
fect weather in America or any- 
where else. But the layman, mind- 
ftrt of the mistaken predictions of the 
weathermen and fact that weathe- 
prognostication is a wonderfully in- 
exact science, goes right on specu- 
lating on what effect an armistice 
wauld have on the weather. — De-

WASHINGTON, June 11.— Ameri- 
ca's wheat crop, as forecast by the 
Department of Agriculture, will fall 
far below normal, despite the pros- 

Another Kentuckian was honored 
by President Wilson, on Friday, 
when Col. Henry T. Allen, formerly 
of Sharpsburg, Ky.. was created a 
brigadier-general, according to the 
AGRI- Presi denfs orders. s 

General Allen graduated from West 
Point in 1882, and has made an en- 
viable reputation for himself in the 
army. He is a close friend of Gen- 
eral Roger Williams, commander of 
the Kentucky brigade, and a brother 
j of Mr. J. G. Allen, the well-known 
| Millersburg mrechant. His brother. 
IF. S. Allen, is the president of the 

pects for a more than ordinary yield 
of spring wheat. 

A total yield estimated at 656,- 
000,000 bushels, will give the coun- 
try 16,000,000 more bushels than last 
year's crop, but with the heavy de- 
mands from abroad and virtually no 
reserve supply, it will not meet war 
needs unless the country practices 
the most rigid economy. The depart- 
ment forecasts a spring crop of 283.- 
000,e00 x bushels, a 'big yield, but es- 
timates of winter wheat production

is an uncle of Mrs. J. M. Pickerell. of 
Winchester, being a brother of Mrs. 


Pastors of the various Paris 
churches announced to their congre- 
gations at the morning services Sun- 

day that $250,000 of the $300,000 
gyre an estimate of only 373,000,000 al,otme nt of Liberty Loan Bonds for 

bushels. 71,000.000 more than was 
forecast from the May 1 conditions, 
but still far from the normal yield. 

LEXINGTON, KY., June 11. 
of eighteen United States Army col- 
onels to be promoted to brigadier- 
generals by President Wilson, was 
Colonel Henry T. Allen, formerly of 
Sharpsburg. Bath county, and well 
known in this city. Colonel Allen is 
the brother of F. S. Allen, president 
of the Sharpsburg Bank, and is a 
particular friend of General Roger 
D. Williams, of Lexington, command- 
ing the Kentucky brigade. 

LONDON. June 11.— Headed by 
Major General John J. Pershing, tha 
first representatives of the American 
army that are to enter the European 
war, disembarked Friday morning at 
a British port after an uneventful 
voyage of ten days on board the 
White Star Liner Baltic. 

The party was received with full 
military honors and immediately en- 
trained for London, where it arrived 
safely, and was welcomed by the Earl 
of Derby, the minister of war. Vis- 
count French, commander of the 
British home forces, and the Ameri- 
can officials. 

PETROGRAD. June 11. — Two hun- 
dred girl students of the Petrograd 
Technical Institute have entered their 
names on the roll of a female regi- 
ment which is being raised by En- 
I ? gn Butchkareff. The aim is imme- 
diately to start for the front and to 
fight under all respects under the 
same conditions as men. 

Scores of girls and women, anx- 
ious to fight, appeared at the offices 
of the League of Equal Rights for 
Women, which has expressed its Ja- 
vor of Lieutenant Butchkareff'; 

Bourbon county had been subscribed, 
and urging them to use their influ- 
ence and earnest efforts to raise the 
remaining $50,000 at once. If possi- 
ble. It was also requested that in- 
tending purchasers of these bonds 
should consult Mr. Arthur B. Han- 

It was also stated by the pastors 
in connection with this movement 
that the members of the Bourbon 
County Red Cross Association would 
ask for the sum of $15,000 to aid in 
their relief work. 




tary Daniels has issued this 

"The Navy Department has reason 
to believe that information of a 
character most valuable to the en- 
emy and which might prove 
disastrous to the navy has in 
way reached the enemy." 

The Paris Milling Company has 
filed suit in the office of Circuit Court 
Clerk Wm. H. Webb, against the 
Paris Ice Manufacturing Company, 
asking damages in the sum of $10,- 

The plaintiff company alleges that 
it is owner of the dam placed across 
Stoner Creek near its milling prop- 
erty for the purpose of holding back 
the waters of the creek for use as 
motive power in its flour mill, and 
that the defendant Ice Company with 
out legal right, ran a number of 
pipe* in the stream, and is, and has 
been, drawing water in large quanti- 
ties from the creek, to the injury of 
the plaintiff company. 


The last installment of salaries foH 
the school term just ended was paid 
out Saturday, to the teachers of the 
county schools by Miss Mabel Rob- 
bins. County Superintendent of 
Schools, at her office in the court 
house. * . 


I am profoundly grateful to the 
friends who made the recent call up- 
on me to become a candidate for 
Councilman from the First Ward of 
the city of Paris, as I am convinced 
they were actuated by honest motives 
in so doing. 

After having given the matter care- 
ful consideration and thought and 
following consultations with friends 
whose advice I know to be good, I 
have concluded to accept the call and 
become a candidate for the position. 
In this I am moved by the prime 
consideration of serving the city as 
Councilman as a business man, and 
to represent to the best of my abil- 
ity, those who would have me as a 
member of the City Council. I shall 
strive to do right, to pass up "pea- 
nut politics." and aim to make my 
candidacy as decent and honorable as 
my own business relations with the 
people of Paris have been.

"Captain Lot D. Young, of Bourbon

"Captain Young was one of Mor-

Using the Dimmers. 

We've a complaint from a Bourbon 
<v ..nty reader that is deserving of at 
Union, because it is justified, and 
;*■«• feel sure that many will, once 
tbeir attention is called to it. agree 
fully with the complainant and 
act accordingly. 

The reader referred to declares 
tttt too many machines traversing 
the rural districts and passing 
through the smaller towns are eith- 
6f not equipped with dimmers for 
their lights, or. if they have such at- 
tachment, it is not properly used. 
Many of them are high-power elec- 
tric lights and people driving in ap- 
proaching vehicles are frequently 
forced to shield their eyes from the 
glare with thrir arms and take 
chances on their horse straying too 
far off the side of the road or not 
getting out far enough to clear the 
autos. In small towns, too, pedes- 
trians are blinded and confused by 
strong auto headlights, and horses 
hitched to racks along the street are 
made to back them on the sidewalks 
ir. their attempt to escape the glare, 
thus endangering those who may he 
on the sidewalks, as well as Injuring 
the animal and the vehicle to which 
it is hitched. 

There is no need in arguing that 
the reader who files this complaint 
hasn't just cause for doing so. We 
know that he has, and we believe 
that ninety per cent, of our citizens 
know that it is true. There is a com- 
mon understanding, a sort of a cour 
tesy of the road that autos are to 
dim their lights as they approach 
The good driver and the sensible dri 
Ter still observes It. There really ap 
pears to be no good reason for giv 
lng any 
cause for 

cinnati. who has devoted his life to a 
study of human ability and fitting 
the right job to the right man, says: 

"There is a new psychology of 
work. One of its most inspiring 
principles is that the man who makes 
a failure on one job is likely to make 
a success of the job of an opposing 
type, assuming, of course, that he 
fails in the face of real effort. This 
is the significance of failure: It 
points the way to an occupation 
which means success. Failure to a 
willing man is merely misplacement 
on his job. Failure at one job is not 
a calamity; it is an indication. Ev- 
ery failure is a guldepost to success. 

"Fortunately some employers are 
beginning to understand this. When 
a man fails in one job they shift him 
to another of an opposite type. And 
if the worker is not lazy or dishon- 
est he usually succeeds. No foreman 
should be allowed to discharge a 
man. He should merely report to a 
central office that the man Is not 
successful on his particular kind of 
work. In another department he may 
break records. To fjre a man who 
has failed at one job is poor business. 
The shifting of failures means the 
making of 


"Business As Usual" should be the 
patriotic slogan of every citizen of 
Paris and Bourbon county, for with a 
continuation of the city's, county's. 
State's and Nation's business in their 
regular and accustomed channels, we 
can pay our war costs and still hav^ 
plenty left over to aid our Allies. 

The billions of dollars of money to 
be expended in war preparations will 
be put into circulation in our own 
country, and this in itself will create 
k new wealth for use in the world- 
struggle for humanity and relief from 
oppression and Germanism. 

The one thing that might halt bus- 
iness now is an unpatriotic psycholo- 
gical feeling of panic and a false idea 
of patriotic economy. 

Patriotic economy means the elim- 
ination of waste and extravagance 
It means~the conservation of our food 
products, our natural wealth, our 
health, our energies, our labor, our 
\ery lives. It means putting more 
efficiency into everything we do so 
that each unit of money, energy and 
intelligence may accomplish the very 

Patriotic economy does not mean 
the lowering of America's standard 
of living, which would make us less 
efficient physically and mentally, na- 
tionally and individually, and would 
kill the spirit and will to do the truly 
self-sacrificing things to be done. 

Citizens of Paris and Bourbon 
county, let's be patriots and do our 
share by keeping "Business As

by means of which objects revealed 
by the X-rays are made visible to

A BRITISH PORT. June 11.— Major 
General John .1. Pershing, com- 
mander of the first American expe- 
ditionary force to France has arrived 
in England, accompanied by his staff. 

He reported a pleasant trip, and 
expressed the utmost astonishment 
that the news of his departure had 
been successfully suppressed. 

"I thought 'he whole world knew 
about my leaving the United States." 
he said. 

Pershing a*id his party were given 
a tremendou I ovation. 

"We are Had to be the standard 
bearers of our country in the great 
war of cizilization." Pershing said. 

"To land cn British soil and re- 
ceive such a welcome is very signi 
flcant — and deeply appreciated. 

"We expect soon to be playing our 
part, and I hope it will be a very 
large part." 

Pershing and his staff worked hard 
all the way across preparing plans 
for their work in France. 

Included in Pershing's party was 
his staff and detachments of engi- 
neers and nurses. Distinguished 
British army and navy officers met 
them here with the warmest wel- 



During a State-wide survey in 
Michigan it was shown by an analy- 
sis of 2.957 cases studied that the 
majority of cases of tuberculosis ex- 
isting in a section at any given time 
will recover completely if they re- 
ceive proper care at sanatoria, hos- 
pitals and at home, and that these pa- 
tients need not necessarily at any 
time be a danger to persons around 
them. Fifty-seven per cent, recov- 
ered without at any time being infec- 
tious. The Kentucky Board of Tuber- 
culosis Commissioners in doing all in 
its power to inform the people that 
no longer must those with tuberculo-

treatment which study and science 
suggests and which experience has 
shown to be beneficial. 

Hello, Grandma! 
We're All Well,

It is a joyous 
moment for the distant 
grandparent when she 
hears the voice of her 
favorite youngster on the Long Distance

* Children who cannot write can use the 
Bell Telephone with ease, and their small 
voices over the wires give assurance to loved 
ones that all is well. 

The Long Distance Bell Telephone

Most neighborhood have her. She 

It matters not that the Job is self- 
assumed, she never sleeps on it. 

She is frequently the widow of 
some man whom the community held 
in high esteem. In a moment of fa- 
tal weakness he annexed her to his 
life, and very soon that life became 
worthless to him and he was glad to 
lay it down. 

Since worrying him into his grave, 
her ambition seems to be to send him 
plenty of company for fear he may 
become lonesome, deprived as he is of 
her presence. 

Nothing is begun, carried on or 
completed without her meddlesome 
interference. She knows the full his- 
tory of every man, woman and child 
for miles around, and if an illtimed 
breath of Scandal is needed to wither 
and destroy a promising career, she 
furnishes it with glee. 

Having long since parted with any 
>outhful charms she may have Once 
possessed, the possession of attract- 
; \eness in the young people seems to 
fill her withered heart with gall. 
The boys of the community are all 
trifling and vicious, the girls weak 
and silly. Their mothers and fa- 
thers are no better, and really one 
cannot imagine what the world is 
coming to. 

No affair of community or family 
life Is too big or too little for her 
meddlesome tongue to dip into. She 
annoys us, but we tolerate her. She 
nags us, but we bear it.. At times 
she almost runs us crazy, but we en- 
dure it. 

And there is no remedy, no re 
course — 

Yes, there is one. Dr. Ossler sug- 
gested it, and was frowned out of 
court. But, honestly, when contem- 
plating the tyrannical rule of this 
community meddler we sometimes 
wonder if the world was not too se- 
\ere on the Doctor.

Kentuckians Place Stamp of 
Approval on Teniae. 


When a medicine is vouched for by 
hundreds In a state like Kentucky 
there can be no doubt ae to its merits 
Kentuckiaui are not easily led to make 
public statement! about anything. They 
are inclined to test a remedy thorough- 
ly before placing their O. K. on it 

Therefore Teniae's originators are 
proud to point to the hundreds of testi- 
monials given voluntarily by people of 
the Blue Grass State. Here are a few 
of the statements: 

EDWARDS- Mrs.- Belle Phillips: "I 
suffered from nervousness nml loss 
of appetite. Needed something to 
build me up. Tanlac brought back 
my appetite and gave me rest at 

OLATOX-Mrs. Belle Daniel: "Was 
troubled with my stomach for sev- 
eral years and was all run down. 1 
havfi__used three bottles of Tanlac 
and am naw feeling much better. My 
api>etlte has come back and I have 
already gained 15 pounds." 

CLEAT* >X— Mrs. Sue Bobbltt: "I suf- 
fered from rheumatic pains, sick 
stomach, headaches and nervousness, 
hut since taking Tanlac my health In 
general has improved. 1 think it is 
a fine medicine." 

CARLISLE— Mrs. Millie D. Laughlln: 
"I was weak, nervous and restless 
before I started taking Tanlac, but 
now I have my strength back and am 
able to do my own housework again." 

MALT— Mrs. Mary L. Howell: "Head- 
aches, backaches and nervousness, 
caused by disordered stomach and 
kidneys, uuderinlned me until I was 
completely run down. Tanlac, how- 
ever, has me on the road back to ' 
health and I exi>ect to be all right In 
a short time." 

PENICK-W. G. Mays: Food soured 
on my stomach and_I suffered from 
heartburn. I was weak and didn't 
seem to have any ambition. Tan- 
lac baa toned up my stomach and 
strengthened me all around." 
Tanlac has built up thousands of 

people In this state. If you are run 

down In health get it today, as it will 

do the same for you.

The fact that a large number of 
women in the war 2one are rendering 
valuable service as wireless operators, 
has emphasized the fact that wireless 
telegraphy is a vocation to which wo- 
men can easily adapt themselves. 
Miss Katherine Parkin, of San Rafel. 
Cal.. recently received a first grade 
radio operator's license from the 
United States Government. She is 
only fifteen years old, and in her 
third year of high school. Miss Gra- 
nelia Parker, of Florida, is the first 
woman to act as universal operator. 
She is in charge of the radio set of 
the Clyde liner Mohawk. When the 
Nary Department recently Issued its 
country-wide call for wireless opera- 
tors who would be available in time 
of war, a large number of women 
answered, among them social leaders 
in several cities. Wireless operating 
was an important branch of the work 
of the Women's Preparedness Camps 
during the past summer and a num- 
ber of competent operators are avail- 
able as a result. 


More Silks at One Dollar Thirty 
Nine Cents per Yard 

The sale of these good silks, so moderately priced, 
has been remarkable, we feel so encouraged that we have 
added some more of $2.00 and $2.50 qualities to the list.

Automobile Hearse or Ambulance !' 

I desire to announce to our friends that I can, where 
desired, furnish an automobile hearse or ambulance. This 
method of transportation is especially desired on long trips, 
the same being made in better time, and at no advance in 
cost over the horse-drawn conveyance.

Notwithsanding the fact that 
Glasgow, K7., is far inland and con- 
sidered a remote little city, it was re- 
cently visited by a real German spy 
who came there in the disguise of a 
tramp singer. He gave his name as 
Lewis, and said he was walking from 
Louisville to the gulf coast on a 
wager. Soon after arriving he met 
some of the prominent musicians of 
the town. Such a perfectly trained 
voice did he possess that the Music 
Club invited him to sing before -them 
and he did. He was asked by some 
of the ladies to change his tramp 
clothes, but begged them to let him 
wear the ones he had on, as he said 
he was not allowed to change. 

Recently Rev. L D. Knight, pas- 
tor of the Baptist church, attended 
the Baptist Convention in Birming- 
ham, Ala., and while there learned 
that the foreigner who captured 
Glasgow by his wonderful voice was 
in prison, charged with being a Ger- 
man spy. Sewed in the lining of his 
clothing were found papers and spec- 
ifications of every bridge covering the 
entire route of the L. & X. railroad, 
and the Jackson highway.

This is a very painful and dan- 
gerous disease. In almost every 
neighborhood someone has died from 
it before medicine could be obtained 
or a physician summoned. The right 
way Is to have a bottle of Chamber-

in the house so as to be prepared 
for it. Mrs. Charles E?» ear t. Hunt-

dwarfed in mind and soul through 
the pursuit of material* things, that 
liberty, patriotism, and American-

The attitude of many is "let th«

But you will understand finally 
what patriotism' means, just as 
France understands. 

Meanwhile Bourbon has slacked 
shamefully in failing to take her 
share of the Liberty Bomls. She is 
thousands short, with only two days 
to make good her deficit. 

That deficit will be made good by

The city officials, railroad officials 
and others have inspected the dam-

up water used by the Paris Milling

been very busy, especially those who

The practice of buying dry goods 
on approval and later returning it to 
stores constitutes an enormous un- 
necessary cost, and is likely to be 
abolished as a war economy measure, 
the Commercial Economy Board of 
the Council of National Defense re- 
ported at Washington, Saturday. An 
investigation shaws that returned 
dry goods vary from 4 to 30 per 
cent, of the sales, and cause many 
thousands of dollars of expense.

It is highly important for candidates 
for office in Kentucky to familiarize 
themselves with the provisions of the

clear our minds of prejudice we be-

more worthy of respect and confidence. 
No one wants to be Judged by false

Prejudice cramps the mind and the

It Is wise to search your heart, and 
if you find prejudice there to set about 
to root it out wholly. Do not be sure

Nearly everyone who has had bus- 
iness at the waiting station of the In- 
terurban line in Paris, has seen and 
perhaps had a romp witir^Rover." 
the big shepherd dog belonging to 
Mr. Harry Jeffars, the agent. "Ro- 
ver" was no common canine, but n 
dog of most excellent disposition, 
one who made friends with all the 
patrons of the line. 

"Rover" was a character in dog- 
dom, and was the especial favorite 
and playmate of the daughter of the 
Jeffars household, Miss Josephine Jef- 
fars. "Rover" had more than a com- 
mon cur's education, and for this rea- 
son he was well-liked by everybody. 
One unlucky day the dog was killed 
by a policeman who thought he (the 
dog, not the policeman) was suffering 
from the rabies. There was gloom in 
the Jeffars household, and many of 
the patrons of the line noted the 
canine's absence from his usual 
haunts. A friend of the family, who 
sympathized with them, indited the 
following lines to the memory of 
"Rover," which is doggone good dog- 
gerel poetry, in the style of the late 
lamented Col. W. J. Lampton: 

There was a dog whose name was 

No common cur, tho' sheared all over; 
He had a master whose name was

The United States has entered this 
war with a thrilling and convincing 
statement of her motives. 1 England 
and France have acclaimed us as an 
ally whose purpose acknowledges 
that their tremendous sacrifices dur- 
ing the past three years of fighting 
were made in a crusade for civiliza- 
tion and against barbarism. 

Never in our history has there been 
a nobler call to national duty. It 
brought us face to face with the debt 
each one of us owes, not only to out- 
country, but to civilization. But if 
we are going to give substance to 
President Wilson's Inspiring words, 
every patriotic man, woman and 
child in this country ought to do his 
bit, and to do it in Tfief way in which 
he or she may be the most efficient. 

There are so many ways now to 
help, that every one can find some- 
thing to do — if he is willing to do 
it. And in the doing, many of us 
will acquire a conscious nationalism 
which we have never felt before. We 
will learn to look upon our flag not 
as a mere decoration, but as a sa- 
cred token of service. 

There can be but one brand of loy- 
alty in this country now — active sup- 
port of our government's plan; and 
the quicker every one of us gets 
busy doing for the aid of our govern- 
ment the thing that we can do best, 
the sooner this war will be over and 
peace secured.

than the test of time? Thousands of

Pills have brought lasting results.

neighbors testified to the relief they 
had derived from the use of Doan's 
Kidney Pills. They now confirm their 
testimonials. They say time has com- 
pleted the test. 

Geo. McCandles. Second street,

Farmers are now utilizing the 
same methods in barn building that 
city contractors use in their construc- 
tion work. Derricks or gin poles are 
used to raise the heavy materials and 
f-wing them into place. The gin pole 
is a sort of mast with long arms or 
beams provided with pulleys and 
ropes. An Indiana farmer recently 
raised a barn one hundred feet wide 
and one hundred and fifty feet long 
by this apparatus in a single after- 
noon. A few of his neighbors were 
called to assist, but the machinery 
adjusted all the large beams and out- 
lined the form of the hip roof. His 
gin mast was operated by the com- 
bined use of his farm tractor and his 
Ford car.

to Loosen a Tender Corn 
So It Lifts Out 

You reckless men and women who 
are pestered with corns and who have 
at least once a week invited an aw- 
ful death from lockjaw or blood poi- 
son are now told by a Cincinnati au- 
thority to use a drug called Freezone. 
which the moment a few drops are 
applied to any corn or callous the 
aireness is relieved and soon the en- 
tire corn or callous, root and all, lifts 
of* with the fingers. 

Freezone dries the moment it is ap- 
and simply shrivels the corn 
without inflaming or even 
Irritating the surrounding tissue or 
skin. A small bottle of Freezone 
will cost very little at any of the 
drug stores, but will positively rid 

hardened callous. If your drug-

In the Imperial Valley of Califor- 
nia they are making fortunes raising 
cotton this year — sudden dramatic 
fortunes. Everything about the Im- 
perial Valley seems to have the dra- 
matic quality; its story would make 
a good moving picture. In 1900 it 
was a blistering desert where a buz- 
zard could scarcely live. And then 
the government harnessed the Colo- 
rado River and the the desert was 
veined with irrigating canals and 
ploughed and planted, and for the 
first time since the primordial floods 
subsided a tint of green and growing 
things spread over the valley. 

Cotton arrived in 1906. It came in 
the shape of a box of seed under tho 
seat of a wagon driven by a Texas 
homesteader. He asked why they 
didn't raise cotton thereabouts, and 
they said because it wouldn't grow. 
And so being from Texas, which la 
something like Missouri, he planted 
his little store of cottonseed and it 
came up and opened its snowy bolls 
to the wonderment of all beholders. 
Furthermore, the next year it came 
up and bore again without another 

The Texan's little cottonfleld 
spread like a drop of butter on a hot 
pan. It clathed the bareness of the 
desert in its fleece. And it brought 
to the men who owned the land 
more hard Iron dollars than ever 
they had seen before. There are 
fifty thousand acres of cotton In the 
Imperial Valley this year and there 
are going to be many more next year. 
And even better than the cotton 
crop is the human crop whih this 
desert has borne for it is peopled by

W. V. SHAW, Agent 

The thorough manner in which the 
National government is carrying out 
its proposed plans to cut down all 
unnecessary waste in every depart- 
is demonstrated in an official 
received Saturday by Postmas- 
ter J. Walter Payne from the Post- 
office Department, advising him to 
notify patrons not to use two or more 
stamps on letters when one stamp of 
a larger denomination will suffice for 
the same purpose. 

The communication points out that 
the waste incurred in materials used 
in making stamps would be consider- 
ably lessened if this plan were ad- 
hered to all over the country. 

(Cleveland Plain Dealer.) 
It is the duty of every American 
ta take thought of how he can keep 
in good health. Sickness will de- 
crease the national efficiency by just 
M) much, whether It be among sol- 
diers or noncombatants. Steps that 
will insure one against disease are 
among the best forms of prepared- 

Health of a nation at war or at 
peace depends in a large measure 
upon its food. A nation cannot 
thrive and be healthy unless it has 
good food and plenty of it. The 
mobilization of agricultural products 
mus go hand and hand with the mob- 
ilization of factories and munitions. 

Nearly half of the body building 
food and 70 per cent, of the sus- 
taining food on American tables is 
derived from grain, according to the 
Life Extension Institute. These 
grains are to be the manufacturing 
industries. The wanton destruction 
of food is as much of a traitorous 
act as the destruction of arms and 
ammunition. In the last anaylsis, it 
is the well-fed nation that will pre- 

The housewife must be economical 
in the preparation of food and must 
cook it with skill, so that meals will 
be tasty and agreeable. 

Vaccination against typhoid and 
smallpox are execellent preparedness 
steps. It is estimated that within 
the past ten years Germany has 
saved enough men from smallpox to 
offset her terrible losses at Verdun. 
The death toll in this country from 
preventable disease is far greater 
than any likely war losses. Fewer 
men were killed in the Civil War 
on both sides than have died from ty- 
phoid fever alone in the United 
States, in the last ten years. 

Any effort that tends to reduce the 
infant mortality rate will help re- 
pair the wastages of war. 


How often your friend thinks of 
you is something over which you have 
| no control; what his thoughts are, 
I ruch times, however; rests with 

The cheer she gave,

While bugle calls are ringing clear 
For legions to advance, 

Let all the war hosts life a cheer 
For scarred and valiant France.

A Pennsylvania steel factory re 
cently completed a rotary kiln for a 
cement plant in California. It is a 
tube 120 feet long, 12 feet in diam- 
eter and weighing more than 150,000 
pounds. It had to be shipped by rail 
across the continent. Special cars 
were prepared for it which were pro- 
vided with swivels to allow for the 
necessary movement as the big pipe 
*as swung around curves. It re- 
quired four of the largest sized flat 
cars to carry it and is said to be the 
largest single piece of feright ever 
handled in the world. 


Do you remember your first ridp 
in a Pullman? Of course, you dor 
and that's why you will sympathize 
with Henry the Ninth. He was on 
his way from Chicago to New York. 

He thought every passenger in 
that gorgeous coach was a million- 

Worse (or better) still, he was 
certain that the beautiful, smiling, 
blonde lady was Lillian Russell. Any- 
way, she looked like the fair Lillian 
And when Henry obligingly got off 
the train to send a telegram for her, 
the signature convinced him. yCan 
you blame the youth? « 

"But he saw New York" is the title 
of this delightful story. 

It is in the July Cosmopolitan Mag 

Every time a man hears his name 
mentioned in connection with a poli- 
tical office he imagines that the world

At the sge of eighty-four, Col. Peter 
Paul Dobozy ot West Plains, Mo., sur- 
vivor of the Hungarian insurrection of 
1848-49, of the war of France and Italy 
against Austria in 1859 and a veteran 
of the Civil war in this country, has 
offered his services and his life to the 
United States. He has asked permis- 
sion of the government to establish 
a cavalry training station at 
Plains, Mo. 

He came to this country in 1802 with 
two nephews of Louis Kossuth and in 
1863 organized a regiment of negro 
heavy artillery. After the war he be- 
came an engineer in the Ozark country 
and blazed the way for the old Kansas 
City, Fort Scott and Gulf railway, 
a part of the Frisco system. 


Patriotic Youth Has CI 
but It Is Detected by 
ing Officers. 

Albany, N. Y. — Trying to boost his 
5 feet 3 Inches up to the standard re- 
quired for military service, Willis 
Hartman, a patriotic youth from Glen- 
wood, near here, tried a form of ele- 
vation that almost got by the United 
State marine corps recruiting officers 

Willis went through without a flaw 
until he stripped to be examined for 
scars when the doctor discovered sev- 
eral layers of adhestive plaster and a 

small cotton pad under each heel that 
gave a "French-heel effect" to the 
would-be warrior. When it was re- 
moved, he lacked one Inch of meeting 
the required height 

'T don't want to be a slacker, so I 
tried my best to enlist." said Hart- 
man, when he was rejected. "The 
scheme would be all right, too." he add-

A new alloy has been perfected, by 
the use of which rubber can be sol- 
idly welded to steel and other metals 
with a joint of immense strength. 
The alloy has a stronger affinity for 
rubber than rubber has for itself — 
that is. when a sheet of rubber is 
welded between two sheets of metal 
by the use of the alloy, and a strain 
is applied to pull the sheets of metal 
apart, the rubber will part in the 
middle before it parts at either of tho 
joints. This newly discovered alloy 
is of great value in electrical con- 
struction, where it is necessary to in- 
sulate different metals by applying 
a coating of rubber that will stick

Postmaster J, Walter Payne is in 
receipt of a notification from the 
United States Postoffice Department 
at Washington that official postal 
guides will be given to the puplic 
soon at seventy-five cents each. 

In the past it has been the policy 
of the department to give these out 
only to postoffices, but the confus- 
ion resulting from this custom has 
caused it to be abandoned. 

The communication from the Post- 
effice Department says that the rule 
will mainly benefit the banks and 
other business places doing a mail 
order business, but will at the same 
time be an aid to individuafs. Circu- 
lars giving full information and par- 
ticulars concerning obtaining the 
book's may be had at the Paris post, 

In addition to the Postal Guide 
the supplemental monthly reports on 
postal rate changes and other postal 
actions ape given with the purchase
